Outlaw insists they are the only company to offer all the parameters of DPLII, this might be a good way to exploit it at its full potential.
|Do you really use L7 alot (assuming you've got a Lex) on top of a DTS/DD signal?|
|I could see it maybe to get 6 or 7 chann. out of a 5.1 soundtrack, but I think Outlaw's preamp can do this too (but not 100% sure, so please nobody flip out if I'm wrong -thanks).|
|...how did I "minimize the impact of Lex's experstise in software/dsp design"?|
|Nobody has excellent dsp modes for things like hall, jazz club, etc. I think Outlaw isn't even putting any of these usless things in because of the poll they took online where most people said leave 'em out.|
|Does Lexicon ask it's potential customers what they want? Not that it'll make the Outlaw sound better, but it makes me want to support them more than Lex.|
|Points againt the DC-2 over the Outlaw...|
No 5.1 inputs for DVD-A or SACD
No component video switching
Older DACs compared to what the Outlaw will be using.
Also either Lex is still more costly AND used.
|I know you might think I'm in love with this Outlaw preamp, but I just want to point out what it's got. So many people have been shooting it down before it's even out because of it low price. They certainly can't shoot it down over it's sound quality 'cuz no one knows, and certainly not over it's features which are tremendous and state of the art.|

In this debate, does anyone know if either Logic 7 or DPL II can be applied to DD 2.0 sources on either the used Lex or the new Outlaw? I feel that this is very important for people who plan on watching HDTV broadcasts, as the majority are still in DD 2.0 and are in sore need of processing. ABC broadcasts are in DD 5.1, but it is very poor most of the time. CBS programs and a lot of HBO movies are broadcast in DD 2.0, and with DPL II applied sound much better, so anyone planning on watching a lot of broadcast HDTV would be advised to buy a processor that can apply its processing to DD 2.0 sources.

Yes, all the Lexicons apply Logic 7 to DD 2.0 material, which is a significant benefit. They also apply Logic 7 to DD and DTS 5.1 sources, though here the effect is not as dramatic because it respects speaker placement in the source, so the only only steering is to properly time-delayed rear channels.
